Oh Bill..If it were only so simple. I am afraid that Simha's posts are much to serious to be blown away with agruments which are based on dogmatic (and not necessarily "correct") interpretation of religious traditions. We function in THIS world. The Zionist mission was to purchase and settle land. While many Zionists may have suffered the same ills as some settlers today I believe that the basic Zionist mission could have sidestepped causing the Nakbah (Catastrophe for the Palestinians) had the Arab nations accepted the UN Proprosals. But, there is no turning the clock back 100%..so, as previously noted, both Arabs and Jews will part with their privately owned land and will have to compromise their nationalist dreams in order to allow two viable States to exist side by side.
